Asbestos Inspection Project Profile
In 2014, the City of Columbus ordered the demolition of this 8,000-square-foot shopping center building. The building, which was built in the 1960s, had been vacant for over twenty years. A portion of the roof had collapsed and the interior was littered with large piles of building debris. An asbestos survey was needed prior to demolition.
Phoenix Environmental was retained to conduct an asbestos containing material (ACM) survey of the building following Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) protocol. Phoenix personnel collected a total of 64 bulk samples of suspect material from the building.
Our report indicated six different asbestos building materials were present. Phoenix assisted the client with completion of the “Notification of Demolition” form for the Ohio EPA; provided the client numerous firms that could assist with the asbestos abatement; and reviewed the client’s asbestos abatement contract for the asbestos abatement firms. The project was completed on time and within the proposed budget. The client was satisfied with our report and follow-up activities.
